Re: PopMatters 2007 EOY list

When I saw Miranda Lambert all the way at #2 and Patty Griffin there, I was hoping somebody would finally include Suzanne Vega. Oh well.

Most of the obvious ones are near the top, and they don't overrate the britpop fads, so overall a good list.

Re: PopMatters 2007 EOY list

the miranda lambert album is incredible.

anyone feel me?

Re: PopMatters 2007 EOY list

I.. feel you, I think. (If that means I agree with you) It's in my top 10 of this year. And yeah, pretty good list, although (after listening to it again today) I still don't see what's so special about In Rainbows.

Re: PopMatters 2007 EOY list

I didn't like it. I was expecting it to be this country album that everyone can get behind, but it's not. It's a country album for country music fans. I don't think it really reaches out any farther than that.
